Congratulations to Dr Kristi Wood and Dr Tim Phillips on winning the 2020 MEDP Award

Congratulations to Dr Kristi Wood and Dr Tim Phillips on winning the 2020 Medical Education Development Program (MEDP) Award

Dr. Kristi Wood will be using the funds from her successful MEDP application for the Canadian Leadership Institute for Medical Education (CLIME). Dr. Wood said about the funds she will be receiving: “This financial contribution will allow me to strengthen and develop not only my leadership within medical education but also strategies to foster scholarly work within the Department of Surgery and the Faculty of Health Sciences. This in turn will optimize the teaching I provide as an academic surgeon and the development of educational programs for learners at all levels of medical education”

Dr. Timothy Phillips will be using the funds from the Fall MEDP competition on the Harvard Macy Program for Educators in Health Professions. He says, “I would like to thank SEAMO for the funding to attend this Educational Leadership course. Attending the course will further help me advance the medical education that Queen’s provides to its students”

The MEDP supports SEAMO’s objective of building an academy of physician educational leaders and scholars with a critical mass sufficient to enable the continuous implementation of best principles and leading practices in medical education. In 2020, $284,000 was dedicated to the MEDP.
